Portuguese centre back Ricardo Carvalho has joined Monaco from Real Madrid on a one-year deal, the newly-promoted Ligue 1 club said on their website ( on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old joined Real from Chelsea in 2010, having won the Champions League with Porto when they beat Monaco in the 2004 final.

Monaco were promoted to the top flight as Ligue 2 champions, reports Reuters.

Meanwhile,  Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Manchester City's Kolo Toure with the defender poised to sign on July 1 when his contract finishes at the 2012 Premier League champions, the Merseyside club said on Tuesday.

Toure, 32, has played in the Premier League since 2002 and enjoyed a successful spell at Arsenal before joining City in 2009.

"Liverpool Football Club can today announce they have agreed a deal in principle with Kolo Toure to join the club on July 1," the club said in a statement on their website (

The Cote d’Ivoire international had become a bit-part player in his final season at the Etihad Stadium, playing only 15 times in City's failed effort to defend their Premier League title.

He will add experience to Liverpool's defensive ranks following the retirement of club stalwart Jamie Carragher at the end of last season.
